The League of Librarians

Let me just say: BRILLIANT!

I am extra impressed and uber-jealous of the "League of Librarians" covers created by the librarians from Carleton College River Campus Libraries of the University of Rochester, and "kudos to Marc Bollman who came up with the concept, took the photographs, and made magic happen." The Facebook photo album of images is posted to Katie Clark's profile, and I really encourage you to check it out!

thanks to Liz for sharing!

Updated to fix my incorrect library credit; also, the set's available on Flickr so you can see it even if you don't have a Facebook account.

Superheroes & Sterotypes

It's Friday so there must be blog reading!

* A new superhero at Comic-Con? Hmm...

* Cat and Girl does it again with "Long Time Listener". Amen to "it's a start"!!! (via about a half-dozen blogs)

* I am a slacker; I've only just found the Library Leadership Network. (I need to add this great resource to my Information Systems wiki!)

* Just for fun: Non-Wrecky Children's Book Cakes. Beautiful!

* Necessary Science Stuff: Check out Experience the Planets, "our solar system through the eyes of artists" - amazing, amazing, amazing!

Yet Another Random Link Share

Yes, I'm catching up... and for the 9% of readers who haven't already seen these, well, now you have!

* The Australian TV show "The Librarians" may be coming to the US!

* Give it up, punk rock: Mick Jones of the Clash has become a librarian.

* The "Tattooed Ladies of TLA" calendar is now available for purchase!

* Could an actual librarian be up for the Librarian of Congress position?

* Darn it, I missed this year's "Library Day in the Life" project. Foo. I love reading about what other librarians do and deal with, though, and you might too!

I'm sure more will pop up later.

3BT: Catchup Edition

Three Beautiful Things, albeit a bit sideways....

1) The wonderful photos in the slideshow at my beloved father-in-law's funeral.
2) Having ceilings in the bathrooms again, rather than large holes.
3) The air conditioner working properly again.

Also, this is my 500th post.

(So, what's been up with you?)
